    Both fighters made weight on Friday without any problems. Buatsi weighed in at 174.75 pounds, while Richards weighed 174.25, both under the 175-pound limit.

    It will be a showdown between a rising contender at the weight like Buatsi and an opponent with world championship experience like Richards. The bout promises to be an action-packed battle in which the knockout could come from either side.

    A new test for Buatsi, who has 15 career wins with 13 knockouts and a great opportunity for Richards, who has 17 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw and 10 knockouts.

            Bulgarian BARELY sees the final bell, was dropped with 30 seconds left and then took a gang style beatdown for the final 15. Should be 60-53 Defreitas. He's got a ton of development left to go, but he's an exciting guy to watch, will be fun to see him climb the ranks

                  Solid from Hedges, another guy who is very young and still developing man strength. Probably needs another 3 to 5 fights before fighting at area level. Would like to see him against that Scottish dude that fought Tommy Fury and Docherty
